Ian Bridgewater, Hello Ian, I really enjoyed your Flawed Family Flick series. I was thinking of doing a similar thing for Mum. I would really like to find the source of the intro clips if you could point me in the right direction. I could put them to good use, but maybe with a different music track. Also, I have some material lined up clip wise, but I am really struggling with text overlay, like your flawed family title. What program could I use to overlay a title like that?

Thanks for posting these by the way. They are genius.

Hello, and thank you for the kind comments. I regret that I can't help you much. This video was produced for fun many years ago and I have produced too many videos since then to remember how I set up the opening. I would be willing to bet that all the opening clips came from the Feature Films or Prelinger sections of the Internet Archive. That narrows it down to about 4000 videos. I would start by looking at silent flicks in those two sections. As for the titles, most any simple video editing system ($50.00 to $100.00) will add titles like I used here. I use an old version of Vegas Video now, (and I like it) but I have used MGI video and several other NLEs over the last 15 years and they all had titleing. Most any video editing system today will do it. I hope that helps a little. Good luck on your video! Best Wishes, Ivan :)

Hello Ivan,
Thanks for the reply. The resource is so vast, there is a wealth of footage here that I can use, so while my aim is to produce something similar to your early productions, I am able due to the choice available to produce several different projects. I look forward to that, and the support of the forum members.

Thanks again
